But if you have a lawyer on call or your family hires one for you, no time typically would be lost. As a matter of fact, investigators can be employed right away.
Also, you may even opt to have a lawyer call your insurance company for you. So if you are too ill or consumed by your bodily injuries, you have a fighter in your corner. An unrepresented party is looked down upon by most insurance company reps.
So you become a target with a big bulls-eye that says: “sucker.” Only a sucker represents him or herself. Having your champion is indispensable. Know this.
In fact, they have a duty to place you in a car of equal value to what you lost. In some cases, if it was a work vehicle, the insured defendant has a duty to pay for the loss of use as well. But without a motorcycle lawyer, your not in the pole position for the legal aspects.
Knowing how to make these arguments is an art. Most of all that requires extensive evidence and metal preparation. Lawyers are trained in this as part of their duties.
But other issues may arise such as the fact you want original and not aftermarket parts. Sometimes you need additional money to pay for upgrades and modifications you performed. So these are valued based upon their current, actual value.
There is no real way to ensure the other insurance will pay full value. But having a lawyer drastically increases the chances of an excellent result. Other times, you may have severe, irreparable damage to your bike.
In that case, it may need to be replaced. And the insured person may not have enough coverage. So hopefully your lawyer can work with your comp and collision adjuster. At least you could pay it off with no lawsuit or out of pocket costs.
Secondary and no less significant are:
Left hand turn and traffic intersection accidents make up our primary caseload. Fellow travelers could become distracted. Or they could fail to judge the speed of the oncoming rider.
These are just some of the causes. No matter how enthusiastic a rider is, the thrill of riding can become a nightmare. Riders must pay particular attention and be on the lookout 100% of the time. If not, the whole family may suffer.
With the freedom of movement and lack of restrictions from riding, comes the truth that riders must be right 100% of the time. No room exists for an error in judgment when riding. And this remains true at high, and lower speeds. There is no turning back. A committed rider goes past the point of no return.
The family members are typically in mourning and grieving. This is a time to contemplate alone. This is where an excellent leader can make their presence known. Having a lawyer is like having body armor and a machine gun when confronted by a knife-wielding maniac. Ehline law act as legal Marines. Do or die; we make it happen!
Of course, one potential penalty aside from the failure to recover general damages is that law enforcement could fine you. Because you failed to abide by California liability insurance law, the police may impound your bike. So beware of storage fees and court costs to clear the ticket and impound.
It could be that several medical specialists need to examine or operate on you. Only then can your legal counsel be competitive in his or her settlement negotiations. With good intel and evidence, your lawyer could hit a home run. So a top legal team could rapidly resolve the claim after release from medical treatment and rehab. Q: Why Should I Retain a Lawyer After My Cycling Accident?
A: An aggressive, compassionate and caring attorney is not enough. Your attorney needs to experience riding first hand. Only then can he or she capably argue on your behalf. Akin to this would be two fighter pilots discussing an in-flight maneuver.
